After I did the Interview with Dad, I got a lot of positive responses via comments, e-mail, and on the message board I frequent so I decided that I'd do another one with my IRL friend who recently turned blogger: Teresa.
Whether you met your significant other on the playground or you were well into your adult years before you settled down or you're still looking for that special someone, you were single once...we all were. So I convinced my newly single girlfriend to submit to an interview on what she thinks about the single life. I always like to get a fresh perspective on things.
First, let me give you a little background on Teresa. I've known her since she was little, she's my sister's bestie, turned one of my besties. She was in a long term relationship for 6 years that was rocky, to say the very least. She just ended it recently. Teresa is beautiful and has an amazing sense of fashion. She's down to earth and a little dizzy, but I love her. So here's the interview, honest as always.
1. What is the best thing about being singe?
It’s great because I do whatever I want.
2. What is the worst/most difficult thing about being single?
The most difficult thing about being single is that there’s no one there at the end of the day to call, snuggle, and make you feel special.
3. Tell me about the last date you went on.
I’m newly single so I have yet to find a guy to go on a date with. The last date I did go on was with my ex-boyfriend. We went to the Wax Museum in Times Square. It was a lot of fun, we took a lot of crazy pictures.
4. Where is a good place to meet men?
I’m beginning to learn that there isn’t one good place to meet men. You have to go out and make new friends because they have friends that you will eventually meet. It’s all about networking.
5. Do you ever feel lonely?
Yea, it gets lonely a lot. Since me and my ex have broken up multiple times before, for months at a time, I know the beginning is the worst. Eventually that longing for someone else goes away and being alone isn’t so difficult anymore.
6. Tell me about the decision to end your long term relationship.
Once you know the history, it will all make sense. I’ll try to make this quick. Me and my ex were together since I was sixteen. He is a year older then me, but mentally he was always five years younger. The first two years was just puppy love and I was more infatuated with him then in love, and he was too busy being immature to love me. He was always breaking up with me and I was always calling, crying, and arguing for him to take me back. We broke up right before my first day of college and I had finally grown up that day. I never called him back. I went to my new school with a new mindset and a new life ahead of me, I could not be bothered with him anymore. A few days had past and he called me, shocked that I never called him crying or complaining. I said this is the new me, take it or leave it. He was suddenly the infatuated one. Things were looking good for a few years, since I was the one wearing the pants now. However, his immaturity still had the best of him. I found out he cheated on me, so we broke up for a few months. We got back together, a few months later we got into a huge argument that ended up getting physical. I broke up with him again. Months later I gave him another chance, when he had too much to drink on my birthday he argued with me and this time it almost got physical again but I had friends there who stopped it before anything happened. I broke up with him again. We were almost not speaking for a year when he reached out to me at the end of this past summer. I gave him another chance. He really had grown up a lot, but the damage was done. I thought I could put everything behind me and start over but I couldn’t. That’s pretty much what it boils down to.
7. How do you feel about this decision?
It’s really hard because I know if I met him today for the first time, we would have a great relationship. Every time we were together we would just laugh. We loved joking around with each other. Unfortunately the romance just died for me due to the circumstances. It was a difficult thing to do, but I know in the long run it will be a good thing for the both of us.
